On the Legacy Amplifier Limitation in Flexgrid Optical Networks

Abstract : Flexgrid technology is an interesting solution to improve network capacity. However, for a given spectral band, it gives rise to the increase of the number of channels, requiring more amplification power in respect with the conventional fixed grid technology. In this work, we demonstrate that re-engineering the link margins allows supporting this increase while keeping in use legacy amplifiers
